Top Ten Books I Hope Santa Brings (TTT #8)

"Top Ten Tuesday" is a weekly book blogger meme hosted by

This week's list topic is...

1. Hammered (Iron Druid Chronicles, #3) by Kevin Hearne
I know I'm getting this one because I already ordered it from Book Depository for myself. I'm completely crazy over this series, so I had to get the most recently published book. Call me a nerd, but this book series is so amazing! I love how quotable it is, and the characters are friggin' ridiculous in the good way. I only say 'ridiculous' when something is so amazing, I can't even qualify it. I just don't want to do anything else but read it.

2. Clockwork Prince (The Infernal Devices, #2) by Cassandra Clare
I'm really excited to read this, so as for what gifts I want to get for Christmas, this tops my list. I'm dying to read more about, well, mostly Jem… and, Jem and Tessa together.

3. A Million Suns (Across the Universe, #2) by Beth Revis
I loved Across the Universe—one of my favorite books from 2011, so I'm eagerly awaiting when I'll be able to get the sequel in January.

4. Daughter of Smoke and Bone (Daughter of Smoke and Bone, #1) by Laini Taylor
Everybody seems to think this one is so great, and I'm just feeling like I'll be left out if I don't read it. It sounds like it'll be awesome.

5. Shatter Me (Shatter Me, #1) by Tahereh Mafi
Again, another book that people are raving about, so I need to jump on this bandwagon, or get left behind.

6. Darker Still (Magic Most Foul, #1) by Leanna Renee Hieber
This one looks really good and has a pretty interesting premise. I love the Victorian era, and it sounds so captivating.

7. Blood (Mercian Trilogy, #1) by K.J. Wignall
I know this title hasn't received the best reviews, but I still really want to give it a try. I want to read it for myself and see if it has any merit. Usually, I like my intelligent vampires.

8. Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
This is still yet to be released, but early reviewers are already raving about it. I figured it'd be a nice one get a jump on in my anticipation of it being a big hit in 2012.

9. Ender's Game (Ender's Saga, #1) by Orson Scott Card
Yeah, I've got to read this one, since I do love sci-fi and this one is considered a classic in the genre.

10. The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
Maggie Stiefvater is such an amazing writer, and I loved Shiver, so I figure I'll love this title, too. I hear it's so good, it's like a classic waiting to happen, bordering on the literary. Sounds really good.

What books do you all want Santa to bring you?


  1. Daughter of Smoke and Bone and The Scorpio Races are two of my new favorite books! Great choices and great list.

    My Top Ten.

    Merry Christmas!

  2. Oh oops I forgot to add Clockwork Prince I showed my sister I wanted that book for Christmas. A Million Suns and Shatter Me are awesome books. I want Under the Never SKy too.

  3. Shatter Me is on my list, too. Daughter of Smoke and Bone is really good. As for Clockwork Prince, my situation is the opposite. I bought it for 30% off at Walmart and now I need Clockwork Angel. I'm also dying to read Under the Never Sky, but that's releasing really close to my birthday (Feb. 16th) so it can wait for now.

    I hope that you have a wonderful day. Merry Christmas!

  4. The Scorpio Races is one of my favourite books ever, and I really enjoyed Daughter of Smoke and Bone. I keep hearing great things about the Iron Druid chronicles!
